E+M approaches each project in the office as an opportunity for collaboration. We focus very early in our design process on gathering collective input and gaining an understanding of the issues that are critical to the project as we move towards a design solution. During these initial project phases, our thorough client interviews, program analysis and on-site investigations begin to uncover important information that allows us to zero in on distinctive concepts that are tailored to the goals of your project.
We will spend the majority of our time with you during this project phase. During Design Development, we will focus on the details of the initial design concepts bringing you space plan refinements, drawings and examples of interior elements, finish material selections and furniture options. Our BIM and 3D rendering capabilities allow you to easily envision the spaces and study different design options. As always, each step along the way is a chance to discuss construction methods, cost estimates, conflicts and schedule.
While some firms are “heads down” during this phase, we keep our eyes trained on the big picture while focusing on and coordinating the final project details that will make all the difference. Through the use of online project management software, our clients and consultants remain informed about the status of the project including current schedule and budget. As Registered Interior Designers, our construction drawings will comply with required local, state and federal code requirements and regulations.
